aura that they projected. mitt romney, what do you think? >> b minus. >> b minus. >> b. >> b minus, tough grade. >> tough grade. basically talking about peace all night i wondered what happened to the strength. some of the statements he said you can't kill your way out of this mess. i wondered what mitt romney was talking about from the mitt romney we used to know. >> what do you think? a b? >> a b. i thought he came across as some one you could see as president of the united states. that little litmus test he could. but he didn't come across as strong and assertive in my view. >> how did, obama do? >> i thought he was an a minus. >> a. >> a, you get -- you are a tough a? >> i have not given an a in this entire series of debates to anyone. i thought this was actually barack obama's best moment. and to me the commander-in-chief test and strong and decisive was actually the most important thing in the campaign. it's why mitt romney rose in the aftermath of the first debate. i thought the president came across that way. tll was a few instances i thought he came across a little aggress
romney just gave an economic speech in ames, iowa at a small construction business that as it turns out received nearly $2 million from obama's stimulus programs. so let's go straight to gloria borgeer who i know is watching the speech. my question number one for you is this. i didn't hear a lot new in the speech. i'm guessing you didn't hear much new in the speech either. so given that fact, isn't it a bit risky, though, to introduce new policy here with 10, 11 days to go? isn't this really about getting voters excited getting out to vote? >> it's about getting independent voters to really take a look at you as somebody who is reasonable. as you said, this is really not about new ideas. this is about a different tone, a different kind of appeal. talking about change. i mean, four years ago. remember, barack obama was the candidate of change. you can't do that when you're the incumbent but it's easy to do when you're the challenger. so you make the case for change. you admit, as mitt romney did, that barack obama was kind of dealt a bad hand, but then you say, you know what? he didn't d
dent in the race. that's because, mitt romney had some ground to gain. he did it by showing voters that he was presidential. and he could fit that role. you know the abc news/"washington post" poll that came out yesterday found that 37% of americans have a better opinion of mitt romney after those first two debates. i don't think there was anything last night you could say is going to change things. president obama came in favored on foreign policy. mitt romney didn't do much to shake that up. of course, 14 days to go. they will fry to see if they've can get any momentum out of it if they can. >> yes, indeed. >> thank you, karen for the report. appreciate it. >>> we are also following breaking news overnight in the search for a missing new jersey girl. officials believe they have found the body of 12-year-old autumn pasqual inside a recycling container not far from where she disappeared. the middle school student last seen saturday afternoon riding to a friend's house. her family reported her missing when she did not return by curfew. >>> lance armstrong's tour de france champions

. who was the winner last night do you think? >> i think mitt romney walks away the winner. he had more positive things happen as part of the debate. i think obama you can look at your scorecard say he scored zingers, maybe wins on points. in terms of the big take aways. mitt romney was on the stage looking presidential, credible as an alternative to president obama. that's his goal. present himself as a credible alternative, possible choice for undecided voteders. >> so much throughout the debate you heard, mitt romney say i agree with you, mr. president. was it alternative? i don't think the average voter would see too much difference between the two? >> the romney campaign calculation this is going to come down to the economy and that's it. you need to get buy in on the other issues. this could be seen as a possible president on issues of commander-in-chief. i think his goal was to do no harm. not lobbing grenades at the obama foreign policy. where he had successes he was ready to applaud them. i am going to take what he has done and move it forward. he was the candidate of hope, and
that up. from laurel down to the beltway, about nine minutes. >>> tonight president obama and mitt romney will meet face to face in perhaps the last time before election day. the candidates will square off in their third and final debate. it will take place at lynn university in boca raton, florida, and will focus on foreign policy. the president has been preparing at camp david, romney in florida. the campaigns used the sunday morning talk shows to appeal to voters. >> the american people have gotten to see mitt romney up close as he offers his vision of the future and what he would do as president. even more startling is the president's complete failure to put forth an agenda for the next four years. >> what he would hear is the president making a case for how we build not education system second to none, so we have the best trained workers in the world, how we get control of our energy future. >> tonight's debate begins at 9:00. you can watch it right here on nbc 4. also, we want to hear from you during and after tonight's debate. i'm going to be gathering your feedback on facebook and
